Recently I was supposed to attend an important meeting periods 1 and 2. Because our CSs are being used a lot at the moment supply were booked to cover me, only the supply teacher they booked turned up nearly an hour late because of car trouble. I understand this happens but it did mean I missed my meeting and had to stay with my class. The school have since told me they sent the supply teacher home (as by the time she got to school I couldn't have gone to the meeting) and didn't pay. I'm just wondering if schools can do this?
